This December has been like no other. Despite the negative news in the media I have found people on the street to be friendly and going out of their way to say hello, cars have stopped to let me cross the road and there has been a genuine 'Christmassy' feel that I haven't experienced since being a child.
I am ahead of the game this year. I have bought most of the presents I need to buy, caught up with some major household chores, crossed loads off my to do list and we are only at the 10th of December!
Instead of running around like a headless chicken I am working my way methodically through the month taking my time to choose and wrap presents, meal plan and generally keeping on top of things. It feels so good to be in control for once!

Better than finding 'A Christmas Carol', I found a book called Dickens at Christmas which not only contained A Christmas Carol, The Chimes, The Battle of life, The Cricket on the Hearth and The Haunted Man but also stories that he wrote for the special seasonal editions of his periodicals.
I was going to start to read the book on December 1st on the lead up to Christmas, but knowing how slow I read and the fact that I only have it loaned for 3 weeks (it has been reserved) I am going to start to read it tonight.

When I eventually arrived home I was relieved to be unscathed by my journey in the wilderness!

I enjoyed the process of painting today - despite the outcome and time completely ran away from me. Time to make tonight's evening meal now and put the paints away for another day.
